About Capt. Willard Kittredge, (USA)

Los Angeles Times Tuesday, August 31, 1886 CAPTAIN W. KITTREDGE His Burial Yesterday by the Grand Army The remains of Captain Willard Kittredge were laid to rest yesterday afternoon in Evergreen Cemetery, under the auspices of Stanton Post, GAR. He deceased was an ex-soldier. He was born in West Eden, Hancock county, Maine, November 12, 1828, and came to California in 1851, and for ten years was engaged in mining and other industrial pursuits. In 1861 he enlisted in the army, and was Captain of Company I, Third California Infantry, stationed at Salt Lake. He participated in the Indian wars of Utah, and won military honors in the fierce battle of Bear Valley. He was afterward made Provost Marshall of Salt Lake City, which office he held with fidelity for two years, and resigned in 1866. He lived in East Los Angeles for awhile, and afterwards in San Fernando. He attended the Grand Army jubilee in San Francisco, where he became ill, and died last Friday [August 27] in Oakland at the residence of R. L. Eames at 554 Thirty-fifth street. His remains were brought to Los Angeles yesterday afternoon, and interred, as above mentioned. He was a brother-in-law of Julius Lyons, of this city, and must not be confused with another man of the same name and title, Capt. W. T. Kittredge, of Boyle Heights, who is alive and well at the present writing.
